One a typo:

conflicts=('linux-firmware-git'

Should be

conflicts=('linux-firmware'

and list so on

The fact that this package can't be built in paths with spaces is an upstream issue.
Version number is created as described in ABS PKGBUILD file: 'Commit date + git rev-parse --short origin/master'.
Version number of this package is similar to version number of official package because it does the same thing as the official one.

This package can't build in paths with spaces. Btw, how is the package version number derived and does it really make sense to use it? People might get confused about what they are getting.

Disowned linux-git and linux-firmware-git.

What's the point of this PKGBUILD? The package in [core] is git-based.

xduugu commented on 2013-04-09 20:25

Updated. Thanks.

WorMzy commented on 2013-04-08 21:25

Please update the PKGBUILD to make use of pacman 4.1 CVS PKGBUILD features. Here's one I made earlier, feel free to use it: https://raw.github.com/WorMzy/PKGBUILDs/master/linux-firmware-git-PKGBUILD

Thanks. Removed to external carl9170 firmware.

seblu commented on 2013-03-09 01:03

carl9170 is now part of the main tree.

xduugu commented on 2011-10-25 09:59

Switched back to git.kernel.org repository.

thanks for fixing this package!

xduugu commented on 2011-10-13 13:52

I've found the repository at the repo owner's site. This package will use this source until the sources at kernel.org are restored. Thanks for your patience.

the source is still broken, but http://distfiles.lesslinux.org/carl9170-1.fw works. Unfortunately, the git repo (git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git) is either gone or still not restored after the problems they had... :(

xduugu commented on 2011-10-04 12:42

Hmm... I get an "550 Failed to change directory." for this url. But anyway, is the repository for this package already up again? I couldn't find it at git.kernel.org.

The source is broken :S You can replace it with
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/chr/carl9170/fw/1.9.2/carl9170-1.fw

That now is working again :D

xduugu commented on 2010-12-06 15:51

Thanks, never noticed that since I usually remove the src folder before/after building. Should be fixed now.

Hello, I get:
==> Connecting to GIT server....
You asked to pull from the remote 'origin', but did not specify
a branch. Because this is not the default configured remote
for your current branch, you must specify a branch on the command line.
Aborting...
error: Build failed

xduugu commented on 2010-10-07 16:38

Would you mind elaborating why you think it is required?

Add 'namcap' to build dependencies:

makedepends=('git' 'namcap')
